Kate is very busy today — she and I are collaborating on a novel, so we talk a lot. Don’t get hopeful, it will take us a year at this rate — so I’m high jacking the blog to give you a mission.
The last time I looked at space opera covers it seemed to me like they were all doing the retro look, sometimes to scoff marks.
There might be a few that were more “modern” look but none of them looked photo-rendered anymore.
This is so WEIRD that I can’t quite wrap my head around it, and I’m sure I’m seeing things.
So your mission if you should choose to accept it is to go out there and search. Space opera, not SF in general.
Tell me, gentle readers: Am I seeing things?
